Networks of (In)Equality
On the perils and promises of the data deluge
Whether it be “big” or “small”, data is being recorded everywhere at anytime. Social network analysis has been at the forefront of dealing with this torrent of data, specifically regarding our social relations. This international discussion brings together experts working on the interface between social justice and social networks to reflect on the promises and perils of ubiquitous data for furthering our ethical and social concerns.
In this public symposium we will reflect on research ethics, data privacy and transparency, all issues underlying SNA and essential for concerns of social justice.
